Nynaeve manages to Heal Logain's gentling.

Summary

Nynaeve is outside the Little Tower, putting off entering because she fears Myrelle may be there. However, when she does enter there is no sign of Myrelle. Nynaeve asks Brendas, an Aes Sedai of the White, if she knows where Siuan and Leane are. It turns out that they are in a meeting with the Hall, and Nynaeve makes to leave when Brendas asks whether any progress is being made with her block. Her answer is no.

The Accepted hurriedly leaves the Little Tower, accidentally bumping into a new Aes Sedai to Salidar by the name of Vandene. A few paces from the building, she is met by Thom and Juilin. From out of nowhere, Elayne appears, flinging herself at Thom. After their greeting, Thom and Juilin tell of what they had learned in Amadicia: a few Whitecloaks at the border, except for the North where they are holding back the Prophet. It seems that Niall does not know of Salidar.

Elayne and Nynaeve realize that Thom is holding something back. Elayne correctly guesses that it is about her Mother; everyone in Amadicia seems to think that Morgase is in the Fortress of the Light.

Elayne laughs it off as highly unlikely, and Thom and Juilin are called to meet with the Sitters. The two Accepted leave so Nynaeve can study Logain, and she notices Elayne isn't wearing the bracelet holding 'Marigan', but Elayne assures her that she is safe. The two then start discussing the previous evening: how Nynaeve's teacher got her drunk to try and break her block. Talk drifts to leaving, but Elayne tells Nynaeve that Birgitte had told Uno not to provide them with horses unless Birgitte said so. On that note, they move to Logain's residence so Nynaeve can study him.

When they arrive, Nynaeve immediately starts to study his gentling. She thinks about Egwene and Rand whilst weaving into the 'cut' in Logain left from when he was severed from the One Power.

Suddenly, Nynaeve realizes what she has done and stunned, stares for a moment at Logain. She has Healed him.
